  • Depression creeps upon you quietly.

  • At the very beginning you struggle with the little things, but you usually choose to ignore them.

  • It's like a headache. You'll tell yourself it's temporary and it'll pass.

  • It's just another bad day.

  • But it's not. You're stuck in this state of mind.

  • You get used to putting on a social mask and you continue to live among other people,

  • because that's what you have to do. That's what others do.

  • However, the problem does not go away.

  • You struggle to put on a play every day.

  • And it starts to cost you more and more.

  • That is why you fall even deeper.

  • And that's when you slowly start to back away from friends and family,

  • Sometimes completely shutting them out.

  • All satisfaction is gone.

  • The old things that used to bring you joy are now worthless.

  • Even the simplest tasks become painful.

  • That is why you lack motivation. Now... why would you keep on trying if nothing makes you happy anyway.

  • All of this makes you feel even worse and you get caught up in a vicious circle.

  • Suddenly you find yourself living in slow motion.

  • Days become indistinguishable.

  • Just white noise, just heaviness, filling your mind and spilling over your body.

  • You feel as though you'll never be happy again.

  • You continue to back away and destroy relationships.

  • You're ashamed for everything you've done and everything you haven't.

  • There is a part of you that wants to make things right.

  • A sudden positive upsurge makes you want to go out and meet people

  • but it's all very short-lived because you know it won't work anyway.

  • Things that make your friends excited leave you indifferent

  • and you become aware of the huge gap that lies between you.

  • Another failure is not an option,

  • so in the end you choose to be alone in your comfort zone where no one asks any questions.

  • The low self esteem and the lack of purpose become unbearable.

  • You finally realize you can't go on that way and two things can happen:

  • you either decide to get some help,

  • or you might attempt a suicide.

Depression creeps upon you quietly.
